These wreck sites are great for exploring the mysteries of the ocean while also seeing a heap of exotic marine life.


Jungle Trekking

Completely possible to do without a guide, simply look for Monkey Bay and follow the route that will take you into the thick jungle before you arrive at a stunning beach. If the name of this place didn't give it away, Monkey Bay is crawling with curious monkeys. Remember to keep your belongings with yourself and refrain from leaving anything on the beach, as the monkeys will snatch it! On the other side of the island, the trek from Tekek to Juara. Look for the signboard that displays Juara Beach, after you pass a mosque and a large water tank. Be ready to climb a heap of stairs! A walk to Juara beach usually takes around 3 hours.



The beaches around Tioman Island will take your breath away. The beach is the epitome of paradise as the blue tropical waters are bordered by golden sands and towering palm trees. Spend the day lounging under the sun with a cocktail in your hand. It's recommended to book a Tioman resort that offers a beachfront location, that way you'll never miss a view of the blue ocean! Some of the most common beaches for tourists are Melina Beach, Lalang, Monkey beach and more. Deserted beaches include Salang Beach to Ayer Batang, which offer a perfectly blue oasis to start your adventure and relaxation on the island.



Some resorts such as Berjaya Tioman Resort even offer a golf course for their guests. If you're looking for a quiet, slow activity, consider challenging your friends or family to a game of golf. You can rent golf clubs and other equipment from the resort.



If snorkelling or scuba diving is not your cup of tea, consider taking part in a range of other water activities available here. You can opt to windsurf, kayak or surf! Keep in mind to always wear a life jacket and don't interact, disturb or remove any marine creature from the sea.
